I am descended from Groundwaters of Orphir. I wonder if we are related. My greatgrandfather was also called James with the middle name, Farquhar. His mother was Moncrief before she marrird. They lived at Scorradale. There was a large family of them.

I am also descended from the Groundwaters of Scorriedale. James Farquhar Groundwater was also my Great Grandfather. He was born in about 1861 so perhaps James W was a cousin. J.F married Ann Swannay (born 1862). His father was John (1822? To 1899) and his wife was Williamina Moncreiff (1829 to 1918).
